No one likes being caught off guard by the price of resources, but it is even worse to learn that your concrete delivery did not include enough to fulfill your needs. By using reliable tools to plan your construction project, you can avoid these costly, time-consuming missteps, and account for the resources required in your budget during every phase of the concrete project.
This is especially important when it comes to concrete. At nearly $90 per cubic yard, this resource can quickly become the most expensive product in your construction project. This is particularly relevant if you plan to use reinforcement materials, such as Novamesh and fiber, in the concrete mix. These can cost 15 to 30 cents per square foot, and even more if you use rebar and mesh. Other factors to account for include vertical supports and pumping systems that might be necessary, and if you plan on using and concrete finishes (such as sealants, stamps, or stencil finishes), these can also increase the price.
How does it work?
To start, you choose what type of concrete calculation you need to run for your project. At the top of the calculator, you will find options for “Slabs,” “Footings,” and “Columns”.
If you need slab concrete calculations, just enter the depth, width, and length of your concrete slabs. Once you run the numbers, you can look down in the results tab. This will show you how many yards of concrete slabs you will need and then how many truckloads it will take for delivery.
If you want footings concrete calculations, the process is nearly the same. You need to know the depth, width, and length of your project. Once you have these measures, fill out the calculator text boxes and press “Calculate.” You will see in the results tab how many yards of concrete footings you will need for the project and how many truckloads it will take for delivery.
You even have the option of calculating the yards and truckloads required for concrete columns! In this case, you need to have the measurements for your project’s diameter and height in inches. Once you have them, just type them into the text boxes, and run the calculation. You will get the yards and truckloads required for the delivery in the results tab!
